[QUOTE=markypooh;944671]Our family enjoys using the fastpass system alot also, but as repeat visitors we have experienced the magic pre fastpass. Im wondering most about those who are making there first and maybe only visit. I also wonder, since the inception of the FP system, has Disney scaled back any of the detail in their queue areas? If EE is an example than I say no but, what about Soarin, Crush just to name a couple.[/QUOTE]
That’s a good question, but I don’t think they have, and, if they have, it’s not due to fastpass–there are still lines for every attraction, often over 30 minutes during busier times of the day. Statistically speaking, the majority of park visitors DO NOT take advantage of Fastpass, so I don’t feel it affects the imagineers’ designs. Also, while I agree that the details in the line queues help enhance the experience while you wait, I think avoiding lines and having more time to visit more attractions is more “magical” than standing in a long, but well-conceptualized, queue.
